Yes BUT what IS irresponsible sex?
Sex without the intelligence/emotional ability to handle the reprocussions. If you know about condoms and birth control, then you know that they can fail. Can't deal with the prospects? Stop fucking. Or don't start until you are.
quote:Trapping is a desperate and stupid tactic, but let's face it, it does still happen.
You cannot trap a man who is not having sex with you. If he knows he doesn't want kids, he needs to keep it in his pants. If she doesn't want kids, keep your legs shut. There's no trap. It takes both the woman and the man to produce it. The woman can't be the only one to take responsibility for its conception.
quote:However, in my view it IS still the woman's body and therefore the woman's responsibility to make sure she is using contraceptives.
OMG. Contraception is the responsibility of both parties.
quote:Some women do decide to fall pregnant (consciously or unconsciously) hoping this will endear the male, forge a lifelong connection, or make him feel responsible/tied to her.
She can't "fall pregnant" alone. What she hopes to get from having children is irrelevant. The man is a willing party in the sex and can't shrug off responsibility for bringing conception about.
quote:And aside from using condoms (which aren't totally reliable) how does a man really know? He has to trust the woman.
Is this man retarded? Or does he have two broken arms? He does have complete control over where he puts his own penis.
